I had always desired a genealogy of our family, but with 
the exception of making out a chart of one branch — that to 
which I belong — had not taken any step in the matter, under- 
standing that others were engaged on the work ; and thinking 
that at some time I could send for a copy. 

A year ago my desire for a knowledge of the relatives and 
our genealogical history was stimulated by a visit from a 
descendant of Aaron, one, Philo B. Ingalsbe ; and after con- 
siderable correspondence, having learned that the work had 
never been completed and published, and that the several 
laborers in the vineyard, Prof. Oscar Fitzalen Ingoldsby, of 
Eddytown, N. Y., Milo Ingalsbe, of Hartford, N. Y., and May- 
nard Ingoldsby, of Syracuse, N. Y., had quitted their earthly 
task, I felt the call of DUTY to the field where the vines were 
perishing; and a love for the work, decided me to attempt its 
compilation and publication ; and at once. 

It is a pleasure to acknowledge the assistance in the com- 
pilation of Grenville M. Ingalsbe, Annis Ingalsbe Park, Mary 
Ingoldsby Crans, Anne Ingalsbe Frisbie, Mary Ingalsbe 
Staples, Caroline A. Ingalsbe, Laura B. Ingalsbe, Emma In- 
galsbe LeRoy, Florence Ingoldsby LeRoy, Eliza A. Ingalsbe, 
Smith Ingalsbe, Maynard Ingalsby, Julius M. Inglesby, Albert 
Inglesby, Mary Inglesby, George W. Ingalsbe, Florence In- 
galsbe Tufts, Albert Ingalsbe, Jane Ingalsbe Jones, Mary In- 
galsbe Bradford, Lewis D. Rowell, Frank S. Ingoldsby, Dency 
Ingalsbe, Almarin P. Bump, Orpha Ingalsbe Spencer, Allison 
E. Ingoldsby, Parley V. Ingalsbe, John N. Inglesby, Truman 
Ingalsbe, Frank R. Ingalsbe, Xurry M. Ingalsbe, John and 
Mark Inglesby, C. F. Ingoldsby, Truelillian Ingalsbe, Mrs. 
Frank Ingalsbe, Seward A. Ingalsbe, Aaron U., Joel T., Henry 
and Samuel Ingalsbe, C. H. Englesby, Mary Englesby Brobst, 
Seth and Adell Ingalsbe, and many others, all of whom I thank 

The plan of the work adopted is, beginning with the 
earliest Ingoldsby record, to give the descent consecutively 
until there is more than one line, then to give it by genera- 

tions, beginning with the first of the family, or entail line, and 
giving each in its respective order in that generation ; then the 
next generation in the same order ; until we come to the seven 
branches of Ingalsbe, when each branch is given separately 
and by generation in the order as above. The pedigree is 
given at the beginning of each record of our post-revolutionary 
families, from Capt. Ebenezer Ingalsbe, down. 

There is still some research necessary to fill out the early 
Massachusetts history— the looking up the administration of 
estates, records of deeds, births, marriages and deaths of _in- 
goldsby, at Boston, Worcester, Sudbury, Shrewsbury, Spring- 
field, Chelsea, Maiden, Rehoboth, Salem— which I sincerely 
hope will be done as opportunity offers. 

The following is respectfully submitted. 


123 Hermitage Building, 
Grand Rapids, Mich. 

April 1 8th, 1904. 


The name of "Ingoldsby" is an ancient one, formed by 
that of the old Norse chieftain "Ingjald," a descendant of Aun, 
the old, and of the Yingling family, (or, according to the 
Patronymica Brittannia, "from the Scandinavian, 'Ingold,' 
'Ingoll,' or 'Ingle,' a surname") in the possessive case, and the 
Danish termination "by," for village or town, meaning Ingold's 
town. "Ingjald" or "Ingold" may mean literally in gold, or 
golden ; i. e., wealthy ; or, it may be a modification of "Angle," 
an ancient people of England; or, from "Ingol," meaning m- 
trenched, or fortified, as, Ingolstadt, a fortified city of Bavaria. 
The first is the probable derivation, as the Danish in their 
conquest more commonly named their settlements directly 
after individuals. 

The Danes are responsible for the name of "Ingoldsby," 
for they bestowed it upon one of their villages in Lincolnshire, 
the birthplace of the INGOLDSBY race, when they invaded 
and settled in England under the chieftains Gothrun and Half- 
dene in the 9th. century; or later, under Eric, Canute, or, 
others, in the loth. or nth. centuries. 

This English town, the mother and sponsor of the IN- 
GOLDESBY family, is at this day described in an English 
Church register, as follows : "Ingoldsby — a village and parish 
in Grantham district, Lincoln. The village stands 4^2 m. nne. 
of Corby r. station and 8 m. se. of Grantham. Acres 2237. 
R. P. £3.663. Pop. 427. Houses 81. The Manor and most 
of the land belongs to Lord Aveland. There is an ancient cir- 
cular camp about 500 ft. diameter, with several tumuli, called 
the round hills. The Church is Norman and later English, in 
good condition and has a tower." 

"Manor" was synonymous in the language of the Nor- 
mans, with "villa" in Latin, and "tune" in English. It denoted 
an extensive parcel of land with a house on it for the accom- 
modation of the lord, and cottages for his villains and slaves. 
He generally kept a part in his own hands and bestowed the 
remainder on two or more tenants, who held of him by mili- 
tary service, or rent, or other prestations. 

We have been unable to find anything relating to the 
Ingoldsby family until the 13th. century, in the reign of Henry 
III. 160 years after the Norman conquest. Until about this 
period family nomenclature consisted only of a given name 
and a nickname, or title, or the addition of their native town ; 
as, William, the red; Roger, lord of Ingoldesby ; Alan, of 
Bretagne. This, it will be readily understood, renders identi- 
fication difficult before the acquisition of this Lincolnshire 
town by the family. 

As The Conqueror in his pacification of England almost 
completely dispossessed the Angles, Saxons and Danes in the 
proprietorship and holding of the land in favor of his barons, 
clergy and knights, it is to be presumed that the ancestor of 
the Ingoldsby family was a knight in the Norman army, and a 
Dane or Norman ; although it may be possible that he was a 
Danish thane, one of the exceptions, who obtained William's 
favor. Mrs. M. Pearson, of Kent, England, an Ingoldsby on her 
father's side, whose ancestors have always lived in Lincoln- 
shire , makes the statement that, "the Ingoldsby family is one 
of the oldest in England, and is mentioned in one history pre- 
vious to 1230; and that it is of Danish origin." The first of 
the family that we find any record of bears the Norman name 
of "Roger." 

The change in the orthography to "Ingalsbe" was made 
arbitrarily in 1774-5, when the Revolutionary War broke out, 
by Capt. Ebenezer Ingoldsby, of Shrewsbury, Mass., and was 
adopted by the several families : and the apparent reason for 
the change was on account of Ebenezer and his brother John 
having been British soldiers in the French-Indian war, and 
the contingency of their being treated as traitors if captured 
by the English. The later modifications in spelling are very 
likely the result of carelessness. 

The Ingoldsby family is honorably distinguished in the 
armies and governments of England and Ireland, and among 
the pioneers in the primeval wilderness of America. Its war- 
rior blood has never 'languished, but promptly responded to 
its country's call. Its Military history is a continuous one, for 
liberty and civilization. The American branch is distinguished 
as an agricultural people, of culture ; scholarly attainments, 
philosophical and scientific mentality ; artistic and musical 
ability ; inventive and mechanical genius ; and rugged honesty.

I will trust him before ye all," declared the great 
Oliver. Governor of Oxford Castle and a lord of the 
Upper House; when he found the cause of his cousin 
Richard Cromwell desperate, he exerted himself in pro- 
moting the Restoration and so effectually recommended 
himself to the favor of Charles II., that he was not only 
pardoned, being the only one of the regicides freely for- 
given, but was made a Knight of the Bath. He m.

13— JOHN INGOLDSBY (4 Richard 12) b. 1621. "Who is 
stated to have been also engaged on the Parliamentary

he came to America and settled in Boston, and became 
the ancestor of the American Ingoldsby family. 

John Ingoldsby a single man, appeared in Boston, 
Mass. Col. 1640 (probably about 20 years old) ; was 
admitted to the church 9th. July 1641 ; appeared in list

at close of war, but it is the last known of him.

mission in the Royal army, but subsequently became a 
colonel in the service of the Parliament. He went after- 
wards to Ireland and was there most useful to his party. 
He was returned to Parliament by counties of Kerry, 
Limerick and Clare, 1654-6-9. Like his brother Richard, 
he was zealous in paving his way for future favor with 
the exiled monarch, whose restoration he foresaw. He 
left his command and hastened from Ireland, took pos- 
session of Windsor Castle and garrisoned it for the 
Parliament, which appeared favorably disposed toward 
the restoration of the monarchy. For this service he 
Avas created a Baronet by Charles II. Aug. 30th. 1660, 
having already obtained a similar dignity from the Pro- 
tector Cromwell in 1658. He d. in Ireland in 1701, one

Limerick in Irish parliament 1703. Acting Lord 
Justice of Ireland in 1709, d. at Dublin in 1712, 
issue by Frances, da. of James Naper, unknown, but 
likely the ancestors of the Irish Ingoldsby and 
Inglesby families of today. 

13 — Thomas, (7 Richard 12) of Dedham, co. Essex, England, 
in 1643, was a Capt. in his brother Richard's regt. Par- 
liamentary army. Had probable issue of

lion 1690, Capt.-Maj. of two detached companies 
and commander of English forces. He was acting 
Gov. of N. Y. and N. J. during interims and from 
1707-10. He was very much disliked. It is likely 
he returned to England in 1710. He became a 


Colonel before he died in 1720. Possibly he was 
the father of 

George Ingoldsby, Lt. of English troops in N. Y.

15 — EBENEZER, (of Ebenezer 14; John 13) an only son, and 
17 years old when his father was about 70. The legend 
is that for many generations the oldest son was named 
Ebenezer. He was with Capt. Penhallow and company 
in Maine Jan. 5th-Nov. 14th, 1722, and with Capt. John 
Grey and company June ist-Nov. 30th, 1725, engaged 
against the Indians; was from Boston, The legend is, 


that he had several daughters and three or four boys; 
that he was mixed up with the Tuttles and a second wife 
and died while the boys were away in the army, the 
Tuttles getting possesssion of his property and cheating 
the boys out of their patrimony. Now, Ebenezer and 
John of the sons, who lived at Shrewsbury, Mass., 
served in the French and Indian war in the 1750's, and 
there also occurs this record, "Sept. 6th, 1754, married, 
Daniel Tuttle Jr. and Mrs. Anne Inglesby, both of 
Chelsea," v/hich place is near Boston. According to 
one branch of the family there was valuable land in 
Maine belonging to the estate, and another branch has 
it that the long wharf at Boston was a parcel of it. 
Sometime they who can follow this matter up may pos- 
sibly learn more about it. 
His issue was — 
EBENEZER, b. 1730. 

John, of Shrewsbury and West Springfield. 
(Joseph), who lived near Boston and was the father of 

Ebenezer Englesby, Cudworth, and Bartholomew,

ton Mar. 13th. 1777. 

Nothing further of this family, though it is believed 
that their descendants live in the state of Vermont, 
near Rutland and Burlington. 

The early Ingoldsbies must have run out of boys as 
the only ones tha't have been met with for an 100 years 
(excepting late Irish and English comers) are the de- 
scendants of Capt. Ebenezer Ingoldsby, b. 1730, which 
is an odd fact considering the several families there 
were then existing. 



Jan. 30th, 1730, in the vicinity of Boston, or Shrewsbury ; lived 
in Shrewsbury, Worcester co., Mass. ; m. Susanna Robbins, b. 
Oct. 7th, 1729, about 175 1. He was a soldier in the French and 
Indian war, serving in Capt. Asa Whitcomb's Co., Col. Tim- 
othy Ruggle's Regt. as corporal ; was with Johnson and Lyman 
in camp at Lake George Sept. 1755, and had his first skirmish 
when sent out after the retreat of Williams and Hendricks 
and the defeat of Dieskau's Army, to bury the dead and bring 
in the wounded. He was not in service in 1756-7, but was with 
Amherst and Wolf at the taking of Louisburg in 1758; with 
Amherst at Ticonderoga and Crown Point in 1759; with Havi- 
land in the march from Ft. Edward down the lake and across 
to Montreal, and at the final round up of the French in Spring 
of 1760; in the last two campaigns, serving as Ensign and 
Lieut. After the war he settled in the north part of Shrews- 
bury as a farmer, and was a Justice of the Peace. A short 
time before the Revolution, he received for his services in the 
past war, a grant from the English Government of 10,000 
acres of land in Maine ; but the Revolution breaking out shortly 
after, he took sides with the Colonies and in some manner the 
grant became lost. Until this time he had spelled his name 
"Ingoldsby" (Military History of Lancastor Men) but at the 
beginning of the Revolution he changed it to "INGALSBE." 
and he had a very good reason for the change. The colonists 
in general were regarded as rebels by England, but a rebel 
who had been in English military service was treated to a 
short ceremony as a traitor, and appearances testify to the 
willingness of the Ingoldsbies to be forgotten, as military 
records show a general change of their name. "Ebenezer In- 
galsbe, Shrewsbury, Sergeant. Capt. Robert Andrews Co. of 
Minute Men, which marched on the alarm of April 19. 1775, 
from 2nd precinct in Shrewsbury to Cambridge, service 19

5th Co. Col. Job Cushing's (6th Worcester Co.) regt; list of

EBENEZER INGALSBE, (Eb. i6) b. Feb. 25, 1752, at 
Shrewsbury, Mass. "He enlisted in the Continental service, 
Private, Capt. John Maynard's Co., Col. Job Cushing's regt., 
marched Aug. 21, 1777; discharged Aug. 23, 1777; 6 da'ys, 
including 3 days, 60 miles travel home ; Company marched to 
Hadley by order of Col. Denney on an alarm at Bennington. 
Roll dated Shrewsbury." 

"Private Capt. Ebenezer Ingalsbe's Co., Col. Job Cush- 
ing's regt.; enlisted Sept. 12, 1777; discharged Nov. 29, 1777; 
2 mos., 28 dys. in Northern Department, including 10 days, 
200 miles, travel home." 

"Corporal, Capt. Ephraim Lyon's Co. ; enlisted June 20, 
1778; discharged July 13, 1778; 26 dys. Company joined Col. 
Wade's regt. June 22, 1778, for 21 days' service at Rhode 
Island. Roll dated Grafton." 

He did not belong to any Shrewsbury minute men com- 
pany, but was out 5 or 6 days at time of battle of Lexington ; 
also at battle of Danbury in Connecticut, where he was 
wounded by a musket ball, which cut across pit of his stomach, 
not deep enough to cause him much trouble until he was 40 
or 50 years old and very fleshy, after which time he could do 
no hard work. At Boylstown, Mass., May 20, 1779, he m. 
Phoebe Estabrook, b. Aug. 2, 1755. After the war he lived 
in Shrewsbury until 1792, then he moved to Boylstown, and 
later to Hartford, Wash. Co., N. Y., where his father and 
brothers had preceded him. After the death of his father and 
mother, the families began to scatter, some migrating west- 
ward ; and the winter of 1808 he packed his goods on a sleigh, 
and with a yoke of oxen and a horse hitched ahead, made his 
way to Tylerville, Jefferson Co., 8 miles south of Watertown, 
where his brother John had been since 1804. He had pur- 
chased 120 acres of land in Scipio, Cayuga Co., and John 
joined him in his journey to that place. When about two- 
thirds of the way, they came to Seth and Henry Warner's, 
where they stayed over night and got into a log chopping 
match between the Ingalsbes and Warners, the latter being 


famed for their quickness in that work, the loosers to treat the 

crowd to rum, of which Eb. and John had three gals, in their 

sleighs, for which the Warners were thirsting. There were 

about 20 or 30 Ingalsbes and Warners and all the neighbors 

came over to see the fun. The Ingalsbes lost the wager and 

very much of their 3 gals, of rum. 

After he had his farm cleared at Scipio, he did not do 

much work, his youngest son, Emery, working the farm and 

staying with him until his death, July 12, 1828. He then 

weighed 350 lbs. His wife d. Nov. 13, 1823. Their children

ever in half an hour; but all his life experienced trouble from 
the injury. When he was 15 he began to teach school. When 
16 he crippled himself for life and almost bled to death by 
cutting his left foot open while chopping in the woods. Al- 
though he had never been required to do much on the farm, 
he was useless for the work thereafter and was sent away to 
school (and as an old English woman of the neighborhood

JOHN INGALSBE, (Eb. i6) b. May 15, 1753, in north 
part of Shrewsbury, Mass. Was in the Revolutionary War. 
"John Ingalsbe, Shrewsbury, list of men raised to serve in the 
Continental Army, from 6th Worcester Co. regt., as returned 
by Capt. Ebenezer Ingalsbe, dated Dec. 15, 1777; engaged for 
town of Shrewsbury, joined Capt. A. Wheeler's Co., Col. 
Thomas Nixon's regt., term 3 years." "John Ingalsbee, Private, 
Capt. Thomas Barnes' Light Inft. Co., Col. Thomas Nixon's 
(6) regt. Cont. Army, pay accts. for services from Feb. 12, 
1777, to Dec. 31, 1779; credited to town of Shrewsbury; also,

Jan. I, 1780, to Feb. 12, 1780, residence Shrewsbury, term 3 
years; reported discharged Feb. 12, 1780." Was in Capt. 
Wheeler's Co. of Minute men in 1775, and on night of Apr. 18 
he was detailed with two others to light the signal fire and 
discharge their alarm guns. In loading his piece, he got so 
much wet grass or paper, that it split 5 or 6 inches of the 
muzzle. He ran to the blacksmith, who sawed it ofif and put 
in a new sight and then they hurried after their Co. ; reaching 
Lexington just as the British came back from Concord. He 
started with 24 rounds in his cartridge box and when he got 
to Charleston he had one left in his box and one in his gun. 
He used that gun until next Sept. Only 5 Co.'s of the regt. 
were engaged at the Battle of Bunker Hill, and though not one 
of them, he was detailed to carry ammunition to those who 
were. He served in Canada, fall of 1775-6; at taking of Cam- 
blee and Montreal ; at battle of Three Rivers and White Plains, 
and help nurse two regts. of Penn. (His especial abhorrence) 


at Isle Aux Noix, who were down with smallpox ; he was not 
an immune but did not take it. That was the most disagree- 
able three months of the war to him, so he used to say. He 
was with two Cos. on scout duty down the west side of Lake 
Champlain, helping settlers in Wash, and Warren Cos. to get 
their stock and goods to Ft. Edward, and they were fired on 
every morning, by Tories and Indians, who had crawled up 
during the night for a chance to pick them ofif when they broke 
camp. It is related, that in one battle, John with one, Sackett, 
stood in the face of the on-coming Redcoats when all of their 
company had fled, and as a last load, he put all the buckshot 
and powder he had into his gun and fired it at the enemy, and 
it bursted ; then having to run to escape capture, he threw his 
useless gunbutt in the Britishers' faces with a "There, dam 
you, take that." Sackett was hit in the heel as he ran, and fell. 
John stopped to help him, but he got up and ran alright. After 
the war he settled in Shrewsbury; m. Jan. i, 1785, Lovisa 
Maynard, b. Apr. 18, 1760; lived there until spring 1789, when

death of my father. He departed this life the 17th inst., at 
4 o'clock afternoon, his health remained about as it was when 
you was here until about four weeks ago. Since that time he

week of his sickness he seemed to be in great distress ; but at 
last dropped away like going to sleep. My health is not very 
good and my wife is in poor health. Olive enjoys comfortable 
health. I wish you would give my respects to Aunt Polly, 
and all your children. I should be glad to have you write to 
me as soon as convenient. I feel anxious to learn how you 
stood your journey and how you found your children. Give 
my respects to Aunty Molly; if living, tell her I wish her com- 
fort in her declining years and peace in death. Olive wishes to 
be remembered to you all. Direct your letters to Van Buren,

GRENVILLE M., (Milo, James, Aaron, Eb. 16) b. July 
26, 1846, in Hartford, N. Y., and an only child. His education 
was begun by his father, who kept him under his instruction 
until he was 14 years of age. The follow'ing four winters he 
attended the district school and one term of Sarah Slocum's 
Select School. In 1864-5 he was a year at the Ft. Edward Coll. 
Inst, and entered Union College in 1866, in the class of 1868, 
where he remained but one year. His record as a student was 
a brilliant one. His Bachelor's degree was conferred upon 
him in 1870 and in 1873 the degree of M. A. In 1867 he be- 
came Prin. of the Argyle Academy at Argyle, N. Y., which 
position he retained for three years, resigning in 1870, and 
leaving the educational field for the legal profession. He 
began the study of law in the office of Hughes & 
Sandy Hill, N. Y., and after a year entered the Harvard Law 
School, where he accomplished the two years' course in one 
year, graduating with honors, as Bachelor of Law in 1872. 
Besides law, he pursued the study of history under Dr. Elliot ; 
botany under Dr. Grey ; natural science under Louis Agassiz ; 
etc. He re-entered Hughes & Northrup's office as managing 
clerk. During the political campaign of 1872 he flung aside 
the most flattering offers of preferment to espouse the cause 
of his personal friend, Horace Greeley. From this time, while 
identified generally with the Republican party, he has not been 
a strict partisan. In 1874 he was admitted to the bar, opening 
an office in Sandy Hill in 1875. Sept. 20, 1876, he was married 
to Franc E. Groesback, step-da. of Amasa Howland of Sandy 
Hill. She was b. Oct. 19, 1856, to Nathaniel Barrett and Lydia

New Berlin, N. Y., in 1830; became principal of Starkey 
Seminary in 1861. His service covers two periods, from 
1861 to 1872, and from 1878 to 1884. "The history of 
his management of Starkey is the history of the making 
of the school in every important sense." "During his 
nineteen years' administration he might have saved some 
money, had it not been for the fact that as soon as re- 
ceipts netted him an income, instead of laying it by for 
the future, he always expended it for the benefit of the 
institution." "Professor Ingoldsby as an executive offi- 
cer was a genius. He inspired confidence all around. 
While he was principal the trustees had no anxiety 
about the fate of the school. * * * All the teachers 
shared the same feeling. * * * And while their 
compensation might be small, they knew themselves to

be faring fully as well as he." "While the two buildings 
which sheltered the school for so many years honored 
in their names two persons as benefactors of the institu- 
tion * * * Professor Ingoldsby was himself its 
greatest benefactor up to the time of his death." "Pro- 
fessor Ingoldsby belonged distinctly to the scientific and 
prophetical order of soul, and his service as a pastor 
was brief. * * * His inquiring mind led him to 
reject not only some of the dogmas of that orthodoxy 
against which his own denomination has always pro- 
tested, but also some of the unwritten dogmas of his 
own sect." "His was a nature absolutely unacquainted 
with fear. * * * jje did not act from impulse but 
from conviction. * * * After deliberate thought." 
"Pie was an abolitionist and when that form of slavery 
was apparently abolished. =!= * * He did not cease 
to be a reformer, but joined the crusade against the 
liquor traffic. Professor Ingoldsby was no actor, no 
hyprocrite. * * * He meant business and every- 
body knew it. No one had to guess where he stood. 
And here was a man who knew no other motive of 
action than love of humanity. No other man had a 
kinder heart or knew better how to say the word of 
comfort. Professor Ingoldsby never used the word 
"faith." * * * He exemplified it. He lived it." 
"Side by side with him through all the fruitful years 
went as noble, as heroic, as devoted a woman, wife and 
mother as man ever had."
